Langford was convicted on bribery, conspiracy and fraud charges in 2009 and wasn’t scheduled to be released from federal prison until 2023. Langford was to serve an additional 36 months of supervised time released upon his initial 2023 release date.

Federal Judge Scott Coogler signed an order Friday reducing Langford’s prison sentence to time served. It includes 36 months of home confinement with electronic monitoring.
